The Avalanche acquired defenseman Ryan O’Byrne from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward prospect Michael Bournival. Although the 26 year old O’Byrne is young appearing in only 128 career games. The 6-foot-5, 234-pound defenseman will add depth and experience to a young Avs blueline that currently dressing three rookies. With 10 players on the IR four of which are top six defenseman the acquisition of O’Byrne couldn’t come at a more timely manner. A gritty, young and physical defensman may just be what the doctor ordered to mend the collapsing Avalanche lineup. Go Avs give the PoohJackets a beating tomorrow!
